I’m back from the South of France with loads of lavender inspiration, a zillion pictures, and what some might consider a tan. I tasted lavender ice cream in Nice and lavender nougat in Gordes and smelled all the happy lavender smells at the Sénanque Abbey. It’s safe to say my goal of having lavender emitting from my pores has been reached.

Today we’re whipping up a simple berry salad with a lavender lemon vinaigrette, because lavender, lemon, and honey go together about as well as Nutella, a spoon, and me. Its ultra-summery, healthy, and slingshots you right into the South of France!
